If you're talking about Gilligan's Island, his name was Jonas Brumby, but not mentioned on the show. Gilligan's name is just 'Gilligan'. We don't know if it was a first or last name. The actor who portrayed the Skipper was Alan Hale, Jr. He was the spitting image of his father, Alan Hale, who was also an actor. xxxxxxxxxxxx Actually, the skipper's real name was Jonas Grumby. It is said that the name of Gilligan was Willie Gilligan, but I have not been able to confirm that. ************ In the 1992 book "Here on Gilligan's Isle" by Russell Johnson ("The Professor") with Steve Cox, the subject of Gilligan's first name is mentioned on page 18. The show's producer and creator, Sherwood Schwartz, intended Gilligan's first name to be Willy if it were necessary to mention one. However, it never came up in any episode.

According to Sherwood Schwartz (the creator of Gilligan's Island), Skipper's real name is Jonas Grumby. Bob Denver confirmed this in 1988 when the cast did a reunion appearance.
